There were 3 different parts of this test I took yesterday. First I had a 2 part ultrasound of the heart.. It was pretty cool to see it on the monitor. First it was just an ultrasound then again with dye in my IV.
Second had a cool gamma thingie. Sorry I don't know the technical name, something nuclear.
Third the actual stress test on the treadmill.
I was told I had to reach 144 heart rate for my test.
During the test they injected MORE dye. I think I glow in the dark.
Once I reached the level they wanted I was to sit for another 30 minutes and back to another contraption Finally after that I was able to go home. I arrived at 9 am and left at 2:15 pm. It was a long day.
Now they said the Dr office will call in a few days for with all the test results. But I do feel confident because the Doctor did say IF they found anything wrong they would take me right over to the hospital. I was told to go home YEAAAAAAAAAAA
I am beginning to think this whole ordeal is all about my thyroid.
I am feeling a bit better, at least I can eat and hold it down. I also haven't been having sweats. And yes I have already gone thru the "change" so the sweats isn't related to that. My blood pressure is down alot too. It has been in the range of 145/98. This is all good news for me. I am hoping the Doctor takes me off some of the meds soon.
